1 Agile Tooling Survey The Agile Manifesto states Individuals and Interactions over Process and Tools. This survey is seeking to identify the Process Lifecycle Management Tools teams and organizations depend on to enable, manage and scale their agile process. This survey is only intended for teams implementing an agile process. For this survey, a process is defined as Agile if it is implementing some form of Scrum, XP, FDD, DSDM, Crystal or combined process. This survey is not attempting to identify whether or not your team is Agile, but rather what types of tools your organization uses, leverages and depends on to enable, scale and maintain your agility. This survey is independent from any particular tool vendor and is not intended to be used for marketing purposes for any particular vendor. This survey contains only 16 questions and should take you less than 5 minutes. Completing this survey will enter you into a drawing to win an ipod shuffle. You are invited to participate and asked to help retain the integrity of the survey data through honest responses. If you consult with multiple organizations, or know another organization implementing an agile process, you are encouraged to invite them to fill out this survey. For questions, comments or feedback, please contact Pete Behrens FAX TO: OR TAKE ONLINE AT: A.
